Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-70: Simple Truth

Alistair Begg was talking about fools.  He said being a fool is not an intellectual issue but a moral issue.  I like the way he puts it.  I have always said being a fool is not acknowledging God.  Consider the words of Solomon.
(Pro 9:10 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
Real wisdom is rooted in a knowledge of God but this points out why our culture has such trouble with real wisdom.  They reject God because God demands moral behavior.  They are not stupid, just sinful.

What is wrong with our culture?  Why don’t our schools work?  Why is there so much hatred?  Why do people drive the way the do?

It isn’t lack of education or poverty.  It is not a lack of government leadership.  It isn’t the wrong political party in control.

It is sin.
